Appearing on SportsCenter over the weekend, ESPN NFL insider Jeremy Fowler spoke on a conversation he had with an executive who suggested a crazy blockbuster trade between both teams.
“Now here’s a complete wild card in Seattle…” Fowler said, via Bleacher Report. “One exec I talked to floated Seattle, just because John Schneider, the GM, has long-standing ties in Green Bay, and it’s clear he’s been unafraid to talk about Russell Wilson’s future with other teams as a potential trade. He talked to Cleveland a few years ago, has flirted with draft picks. Things were tenuous a few months ago; he talked to the Bears.”
“And so, really anything can be on the table with this sort of team that’s a wild card. Now, Russell Wilson and the Seahawks are in a much better place; they’ve smoothed some things out. Pete Carroll and Russell Wilson have talked. They’ve gotten some good free-agency pickups and draft capital, so Wilson’s happy right now. But would there be a better player-for-player swap than Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers? Probably not.”
The Seahawks have made it abundantly clear that Wilson is their QB and will be behind center for the upcoming season and beyond.
The Packers have said the same thing, but it has only led to Rodgers threatening retirement if he doesn’t get what he wants.
